We are very happy to announce Invisibledrum Art Platforms’ very first nordic and international gathering: Symposium of Spiritual Technologies within Creative Practices, from the of February 2020 at Rosendal Teater in Trondheim!

The topic of the symposium brings together artists, researchers and other practitioners working with embodied practices, to discuss how the notion of spiritual technologies relate to and inform their work and research. We wish to structure connection and collaboration in non-hierarchical ways, where everyone can find unity and exchange regardless of professional or academic background, but rather with a common interest in ecology, holistic thinking, and creative practices.

The symposium holds a vivid and interesting program of national and international artists, researchers and practitioners sharing their work and practice in relation to spiritual technologies.
In a free day time prg. There will be presentations, creative circles, performance lectures, workshops and talks by members of the platform. In the evening, there is an exciting program of ceremonies, performance rituals, and screenings.

For a full detailed program please look here:…/symposium-of-spiritual-technolo…

We are looking forward to welcoming anyone interested in the 1st Invisibledrum´s gathering at Rosendal Teater!

Technoshamanism in Aarhus – rethink ancestrality and technology

On August 12, 2017 from 14:00 to 22:00 there will be a technoshamanism meeting in Dome of Visions, Aarhus.

The purpose of the meeting is to unite people who are interested in the combination of DIY technologies such as free software and permaculture with ancestral, ancestorfuturist and shamanistic practices. We are calling all the cyborgs, witches, heretics, technoshamans, programmers, hackers, artists, alchemists, thinkers and everyone who might be curious to join us and explore the possiblities of combining ancestral and indigenous worldviews with the looming disasters of the anthropocene.

If you feel attracted by the combination of these terms, techno + shamanism and ancestrality + futurism and if you’re worried about the destruction of the Earth and the hegemony of capital and neoliberal ontologies, this event is for you. In view of Aarhus’ slogan as European Cultural Capital of 2017, the theme of this event could be: Rethink ancestrality and technology!

A Symposium in New Media, Technology, and the Humanities

Meta.Morf 2016 / Dragvoll, Trondheim, March 14–15, 2016

Futurescapes is part of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology’s (NTNU) Interdisciplinary Humanities Forum Initiative and an accompanying event of the 2016 Meta.Morf Art + Technology Biennale devoted to the technology of outer space and interstellar travel.The Faculty of the Humanities at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is pleased to announce a two-day Symposium in New Media,Technology, and the Humanities organized in connection with the Meta.Morf Art +Technology Biennale which is devoted to the technology of outer space and interstellar travel. Futurescapes shares the Biennale’s interest in interplanetarity, time, and the cosmic beyond, and in humans who dream, invent, construct, and destroy their way into the future. Specifically, the Symposium will explore new locations and entanglements of the humanities and technology, and offer a place for diverse scholars and educators to showcase their cosmic or future-oriented work across disciplinary boundaries. But, we will also learn new methodologies and interrogate critically how and with what tools humanists and technologists communicate with each other, think big ideas, and make things. Finally, we want Futurescapes to address the ethical, legal, and political implications of such work, and how it bears on the futures of our diverse fields.
